"Rick And Morty" Season 3 has been confirmed to be released earlier than expected, as revealed by its executive producers, Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon. The two also treated the series' avid fans of spoilers and teasers for the upcoming installment.
Fans of the hit series "Rick And Morty" have been wondering about the theme of season 3. Many speculate that the show might be reusing the "interdimensional cable." However, executive producer Dan Harmon expressed his hesitation about rehashing the same material multiple times. One reason for the said hesitancy is the previous criticism with "Community" and being tagged as an inside-joke driven series relying on callbacks from previous episodes.
"I was very alarmist about callbacks because of Community getting a reputation so early on for being insular and you have to have a relationship with the show in order to decode it," Harmon revealed at San Diego Comic-Con.
Despite this, the producers are still open on using the "interdimensional cable" for "Rick And Morty" Season 3. "Possibly, yeah," Roiland noted "We're figuring it out. It's very rough on production. It's not an easy episode to make."
Meanwhile, rumors have been circulating lately, claiming that "Rick And Morty" Season 3 will have a more dramatic tone to it. According to reports, Beth and Jerry will be facing marital difficulties and will end up getting a divorce. It was also reported that Rick's wife might appear in the third season. She will assist Rick in dealing with his family struggles. However, the producers have not made any confirmation about these rumors.
On the other hand, Harmon revealed that "Rick And Morty" Season 3 will have a fast-paced storyline, saying, "I don't think anybody wants to do a third season that simply spends a whole bunch of episodes dealing with a situation that we created at the end of the second season. So I think that's a non-spoiler way of saying things should be okay pretty quickly," Harmon said.
According to reports, the pacing of the narrative will be the result of "serialized storytelling" that the series will be adapting in its third installment. Logically, the faster they get over existing plot lines, the sooner they can introduce new ones. In addition, the upcoming season is expected to be the longest in the history of Adult Swim program.
